Additional Information About This Offer:

Background Information: Magnetic Resonance Imaging, generally called MRI, or a "Scan" is a process that uses magnetism to distinguish tiny changes among the soft tissues and hard tissues of the body. MRI is among the most sensitive techniques available and is highly versatile in the hands of a skilled practitioner. 


Through the use of sophisticated computer processing, images can be achieved that can display problems as small as a human hair in tissue that is soft like a bulging blood vessel in a brain. Each image is actually a thin slice taken in three directions creating a three dimensional model. Using our 3 Tesla Scanner you will have the highest clinical resolution possible. 

One of the concerns many patients have is with the size of the enclosure. In the case of a head MRI, your body is not full inserted into the machine, just your chest and head.  the opening is about 2 and a half feet across, so it is not the small tubes of older machines. Finally, if there is a problem there are two options: 1. ask your physician for a prescription for a sedative before the treatment or 2. we can have one of our staff members who specializes in accompanying people when they have these feelings sit with you and talk to you during the test.  You should know that you could also choose an "Open MRI" facility but the downside there is that the resolution of the images is far less and it is possible you will need to have the test done again.  These are fine for major, obvious problems, but since the brain is such a sensitive part of your body, often times we are looking for problems at the far limit of the resolution of our system, which is among the best around.  If the imaging center or radiologist misses something then the diagnosis and treatment may be incorrect.  Since people come to us for second opinion scans all the time, we know, we see this scenario frequently. Scans on a 3 Tesla magnet are faster and higher quality.  The trade off is that no one has invented a 3 Tesla machine that is open yet, most of those have 1/6 th the strength of our system.
